Brief match report from the Edmonton Sun:

The Aviators (3-2) erased an own-goal deficit in the 27th minute when Tara Luciani let go with a perfect strike from just inside the 18-yard box and found the far post past Seattle 'keeper Meghan Miller. The Sounders (2-0-1) regained the lead just three minutes later as Aviators 'keeper Sian Bagshawe made her second miscue as her late charge out allowed Brenda Mueller to walk in for an easy marker.

Bagshawe redeemed herself with a pair of quality saves in the second half, but the Aviators' offence sputtered the rest of the way in trying to knot things up.
